Pain Free Overhead Pressing with KB Bottoms Up Press?

If you are anything like me, you either personally have issues pressing overhead pain free or have a client/athlete that has issues overhead pain free.

In my opinion, you have two options.

1️⃣, just don’t perform any true overhead pressing. There is no rule that says you have to overhead press in a strength program. 

2️⃣, try to KB Bottoms Up Press. For most people you will now magically be able to to press overhead without pain. Because the kettlebell is upside down you are asking your rotator cuff to manage internal and external rotation more which leads to more rotator cuff recruitment. For most people, this rotator cuff recruitment will generally lead to pain free pressing.
